Corrosion Of Conformity - Megalodon

Corrosion Of Conformity – Megalodon

Megalodon is the new 18-minute EP from the legendary American band Corrosion Of Conformity. It was released in late 2012, in the same year as their brilliant Self-Titled comeback album.

The band’s line-up is still Reed Mullin on drums, Woody Weatherman on guitar and Mike Dean on bass and lead vocals. Although this is the band’s same line-up from the 1985 Animosity record, and the band concentrate on that material live, stylistically this isn’t a hardcore Punk/Crossover Thrash album.

If you’ve heard the band’s Self-Titled album, this EP is very much in the spirit and style of that record. There are touches of fun Stoner riffs, slow doomy riffs, occasional speedy punk moments, a generally loose and raw playing style and a dirty sludgy production job.

The EP is brief, enjoyable, consistent and available for free legally, so if you are into the band at all, I highly recommend checking it out.
